Arif Faizan – Candidate for ‘Member’ ICF Shura
My name is Arif Faizan. Alhamdulillah, I have been devotedly serving the Dallas Muslim community since 2009. Alongside this I have worked as an analyst for leading healthcare solutions companies for the last 20 years. I live in Frisco with my wife Sadia and two children. My willingness to help and dedication to make the masjid as operationally sound as possible drive me to volunteer.
My short-term vision for ICF is to ensure that our masjid is equipped with the right resources to allow our expanding community to worship in a harmonious environment and improve spiritual knowledge. My long-term vision is to improve organizational excellence by developing a facility that is self-sufficient and generates enough income to counterbalance expenses.
Managing Sunday school finances helped me gain insight into improving efficiency and empowering the community through education. I have also facilitated the growth of the masjid by participating in fundraising events and being on the finance committee. As a community we must develop more programs to cater our youth and foster an environment which ensures welfare of Muslims. I look forward to addressing issues, and moving the organization forward by upholding the vision of ICF.
